Hi everyone, I just wanted to show you a picture of my new great-grandson, Blake Allen. I know I am a little prejudice but just look at this beautiful baby with his beautiful 2 year old sister Kaylee Jade.
Well, I did something the other day that I hadn't done in a long time. I went Thrift Store Shopping
My SIL called and mentioned "junkin" and I told her that I had been wanting to go. My brother just happened to be home and he wanted to go also. Most men don't like this sort of thing,but he does.
We went to two Goodwills, two Mission Thrift Stores and The Salvation Army Thrift Store.
I didn't find anything that I wanted, only I saw something in someones hand that I would have liked to have found.
Well, I made the mistake of mentioning it to my SIL which mentioned it to the lady that had it.
She told the lady that I would have liked to have found it and the lady gave it to her, she said that she didn't need it anyway, she had one. My SIL went on to point me out to her, which I didn't know about this until my SIL came to the car. I was on my way out of the store. That would have been so embarrassing.
I had one that I had found at a yard sale, but I gave it to my son. He was going to make blackberry cobbler and he didn't have one.
To be able to do some of these would just make my day.
1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down. 2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don't disguise your voice. 3.
